Virtual Tour of Historic Princeton
April 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
From Princeton’s humble beginnings as a stage coach stop and tavern halfway between New York City and Philadelphia, it has grown to become a center for learning and culture. George Washington walked its streets and three other United States Presidents James Madison, Woodrow Wilson and Grover Cleveland, lived in Princeton. Thomas Mann, T.S. Eliot and F. Scott Fitzgerald all wrote in Princeton. Actor Paul Robeson spent his childhood here; his father, William Drew Robeson, was pastor of the Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church. World-renowned scientists Albert Einstein and Robert Oppenheimer made the town their home. It served as the home of the first Continental Congress and as the capitol in 1783. In this virtual tour, on Thursday, April 29, 1 – 2pm, you will get a bird’s eye view of many of the historic buildings and important sights adorning the town and campus. Presented by Eve Mandel, Director of Programs and Visitor Services at the Historical Society of Princeton. Please join us for the tour.
